The Future of Southeast Asian Archaeology in the U.S.

September 13, 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Mānoa Campus, On Zoom Add to Calendar

Southeast Asian archaeology programs are underrepresented in the US higher education system. Although SE Asian groups now comprise one of the largest immigrant groups in the country, only five institutions have a distinctly Southeast Asian archaeology program. In this panel, we bring together early- and mid-career US-based archaeologists to discuss ways to strengthen SE Asian archaeology and to help address issues of access, gender disparity, and representation. The panelists will also talk about how their respective research in SE Asia facilitate the inclusion of SE Asian archaeological observations to archaeological theory and method. Panelists: Alison Carter (University of Oregon); Nam C. Kim (University of Wisconsin, Madison); Ben Marwick (University of Washington); Mitch Hendrickson (University of Illinois-Chicago); Stephen Acabado (UCLA); and Piphal Heng (University of Hawai'i at Mānoa) Moderators: Peter Lape (University of Washington) and Miriam Stark (University of Hawai'i at Mānoa) This webinar is part of the PEMSEA webinar series, Historicizing Disaster Risk Management: The Ecology of Mt. Isarog and its Environs.
